Old Midwest standard. Just had my first one in 10 years. Pours very light yellow color. I canít believe how light this one was. Just a regular beer when I had it 10 years back still the same today. Nothing fancy, but it sure tasted good on a warm day. No head sweet pale finish. Again not much to it but it sure went down good. Nothing wrong with this one. Not as hearty as a Leinies but good in its own way for a midwestern standard beer. Prost Schells!

Straw color with very thin white head. Extremely faint aroma of malt. Taste is sweet malt with some corn and bread notes. Nothing much to get excited about here.

Since I grew up a few miles from New Ulm, MN, Iíve always enjoyed this one, given the macro alternatives. It is a good but unexceptional pale lager which Iíve enjoyed many times in the last 30 years. Pours a normal yellow with a small light head. Not much to smell. Aroma is mostly normal malt with an inoffensive taste of corn. No foul aftertaste. I still enjoy this one, which would be my everyday beer if I still lived in southern Minnesota. Donít go out of your way to try this, but if itís available itís a good session beer

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap. Clear light gold pour with almost no head. Actually a pretty decent malted grain nose and taste. Really good for the style.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Clear straw yellow with a quickly fading white topper. Aroma is sweet, grassy and adjuncted with corn. Taste is pretty much the same Ė sweet malt, mild grassy hops, corn, mild apple and a strong metallic finish. Life is too short to waste more than a couple ounces on this.

Bottle. Poured clear amber with an average white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Light to moderate grainy sweetaroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to sweet finish of short to moderate duration.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Relatively samey pale lager, not different than the thousands out there that have not one thing unique about them, although this wasnít nasty in any way.

The aroma is of malt, somewhat similar to a pilsner, and very strong. I like it. The beer has very little head. The taste is well balanced on all levels. Among USA lagers, this is quite good; not sure how available it is, but if I can get some more, itís strictly better than many other beers of its style.
